Recommend a supplier

Postby apple eater » Sat Jan 05, 2013 20:09 pm

I've been flitting between crc and evans for my parts recently. I've read a few posts about these two aswell as my own findings and opinions.

Who else is out there that supplies quality affordable parts, i'm uk based.
I don't know enough to make smart r's remarks about peoples choice of parts 'n' things, yet!

Or you could use Wiggle so you have someone to blame.
Lot's of smaller shops use Ebay and you can get some great deals.

Wherever's cheapest, add Superstar and CarbonCycles to your list as well as the German sites - rose bikes and bike-discount.

I always check ActionSports and Starbike too. Both German, the former only charge €3 for delivery now too IIRC, makes them even more viable.

Rose Bikes - always prompt delivery (tracked) - fantastic customer service, no hassle returns even supplied with returns postage barcode labels for the post office to use, and generally the cheapest.......... :D everyone else though, you need to shop around......its usually Rose or Merlin for me.. :D
